This colourful chameleon is actually a stunning optical illusion

Italian artist Johannes Stötter created an exquisite optical illusion with his piece “The Chameleon” by using body paint and precise staging to transform two models into a very realistic-looking reptile.

The body paint process took Stötter about six hours with the help of an assistant.
